But even rarer? A male Allen's Hummingbird is hanging out with the Costa's in the area.

During a tour to the Heard Museum, I found this Native American painting. It accurately depicts a Great Horned Owl's preference for skunk. I imagine the meat is quite aromatic.
At the Desert Museum outside of Tucson, my parents admire the unique looking cacti and succulents.
While we visit all these amazing places, I stop and count birds whenever I can.
At one location, I discover a rare White-throated Sparrow.

This is the time of year when I begin to question why I'm sitting on my butt instead of chasing life birds. Well, soon. Very soon I'll be taking you all to a special place in search of several special birds while visiting with friends. For now, I sit at a holding pattern. Until next time....
